Re: European politics

We pay for our insurance, not for (most sorts of) health care directly. It's indeed like 150-200 euros per month and you have to pay the first 385 euros you spend. If your income is too low for paying your insurance, you get benefits from the government to pay it. Suffice to say the Quora troll is ...

Re: European politics

Without immigration, there would not be any problem on the housing market. So it is part of the problem. It might even be the main cause of the housing crisis. But like I carefully explained, there is not much we can do about this specifically. Build more houses? Not sure if trolling, but construct...

Re: Cheaters are rampant and Microsoft openly endorses them

Interesting, I remember the trolling back when that wasn't an option and you would gift a friends hunderds of bs games to fill their library.

Anyway, waiting for a followup from Spanky.

From what I know, you can't remove games from Steam. So do you still have access to your account or not? Did you setup 2-factor authentication? Have you contacted Steam support?

Re: Statement about Revnak

The screenshots also make Goodspeed look better instead of worse. Is Sarg some kind of controlled opposition?

Re: Statement about Revnak

It's funny how the screenshots actually make me look less of a dictator. It's no secret that I rather listen to the community than to corrupt staff members who share private messages.

Re: Statement about Revnak

Besides, I'm generally against censoring criticism on the staff and staff decisions. Staff should be held accountable, so I try not to interfere with people discussing the decicions of the staff. There's a place and tone for everything though, and Gib comes accross as someone who just wants to be co...

Re: Statement about Revnak

Thanks for the report. Given that you consistently call people "Redditors" or "admins", I don't think Goodspeed asking whether he should call you a Tiktoker is really an attack. Calling your defense dumb doesn't seem like an attack on your person either. Regarding the other repor...

Re: Statement about Revnak

Just to clarify, it was not made known that Revnak wanted his account deleted. The request looked like it came from someone who wanted to get rid of Revnak, not Revnak himself.

Re: Statement about Revnak

Permanent ban? Not 1 year or 2 years or smth like that? I dont think that is a good idea, because it probably will lead to Revnak trying to think about methods how he could damage esoc. A 1 year ban maybe would lead to him thinking about how he could work together better with the community after th...

Re: Feedback on New Code of Conduct

It seems so silly that a reason for moderating could just be "because it broke the CoC". You need to actively show why it's harmful. Something breaking the CoC doesn't make it harmful or worth moderating on it's own.

On topic: I agree with Goodspeed. I believe Elite's method is effective for the moderators, I don't think it's effective for creating an environment for discussion and creating a community. Punishing the original poster for other being trolling in their responses just means the trolls have won. I th...

Re: Feedback on New Code of Conduct

I, particularly, totally agree with deleting or closing a post that has become controversial. It is used very often in larger and more serious forums (for example, the official AoE forum) and is really effective, avoids problems, relieves the work of moderators and works as a way to direct the disc...
